Two suspects have been charged with the theft of an SUV Sunday from a home near Unionville.
Shelbyville police officers had earlier pursued the Ford Expedition through Shelbyville, reaching a speed of 80 mph on South Cannon Boulevard before discontinuing the chase due to high speed on a narrow two-lane roadway.
The driver, identified as Christopher Anthony Shelton, 34, of Shelbyville, allegedly remained on U.S. 231 South until the SUV developed engine problems near the crest of Chestnut Ridge in Lincoln County. The SUV’s owner found it and notified law enforcement, said a report by Bedford County deputy Savannah Martin.
A Lincoln County deputy chased down Shelton on foot and captured him on Chestnut Ridge. A companion, identified as Jacqueline Michelle Anderson, 22, was arrested by Lincoln County walking nearby.
Witnesses near Unionville told investigators surveillance video shows Shelton, who is listed as having no fixed address, knocking on the door of a home on Halls Mill Road and looking into vehicles before going across 41-A North and stealing the SUV. Moments later Shelton allegedly picked up Anderson at a nearby convenience store. Anderson left behind a box truck listed as stolen in Kentucky, Martin’s report said.
Shelton is charged with theft of property, auto burglary (motor home), driving on a revoked license and evading arrest. He is being held at Bedford County Jail on $26,000 bond.
Anderson, charged with criminal impersonation and theft of property. is being held on $15,000 bond.
Drug-related charges were filed against a woman who, along with a teenage boy, was found passed out in a vehicle in the parking lot of a North Main Street convenience store late Monday night.
Police allegedly found Xanax and syringes on Larissa Shontae Voytko, 30, of Bugscuffle Road, as she regained consciousness. The boy said he had taken a pill she had given him, which police think was Xanax.
Voytko was charged with DUI, possession of a schedule IV drug and drug paraphernalia, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. She was held on $5,500 bond. The boy was released to a parent.
